Excerpt from the People Country article: The October issue of PEOPLE Country magazine includes a touching article on Amy Grant and the lessons she’s learning as she cares for a parent with dementia. Amy’s mom suffered from dementia before her death last year; now Amy’s father’s mind is failing. From the article: “Early on I was angry and feeling overwhelmed, like, ‘It’s not the way it used to be,’” she says, holding back tears several times as she tells her story. But her new role has yielded unexpected gifts. “A friend told me, ‘This is the last great lesson your parents will teach you.’ That changed everything. I’ve learned even tough situations are beautiful.” Read the rest of the story in the October issue of PEOPLE Country, on newsstands this week.
